having your photos taken does not need to be boring, stuffy, stressful, or super posed. they can be fun, go with the flow, uniquely you, and real. i am capturing the sweet moments that years and years from now will make you say, "those were the good old days"

lifestyle sessions

prints are important to me because you are investing in your memories. you should be able to hold and appreciate them in your hands and they should be proudly displayed in your spaces not living as digital files on your computer. times move fast. we probably realize it a couple times a year, where we remember a moment from a while ago and say to ourselves, “feels like yesterday!” often times the documenter of your own family is rarely in the images. while camera phone photos are important and selfies are fun (you should see my camera roll!), you want to remember tiny toes, big hugs, love, romance, smooches, tickles and snuggles, giggles and tears without your hand sticking way out to capture it and you want to print these memories to show off. my goal is to present you with images that make you feel all the feels now and waken that feeling of nostalgia later on.

what's a lifestyle session?

couples, engagements, maternity, families, newborns, seniors. i basically hang out with you and document you being you! we will get a few posed shots, because i believe that those are important too, but for the most part, i give little direction because the true purpose of these sessions is for me to tell your story and let your real life shine through in the images i capture. don't worry, i'll have a loose plan in mind to make sure i document everything you're wanting to remember in this time of your lives, but the session is super relaxed, go with the flow, and we'll have fun! they allow you to slow down, be in the moment with yourself or your peeps, and allow me to be inspired by and capture the perfect imperfections, natural moments, and connections in your life. i document a little chaos, some quiet moments, the fun, and a whole lot of love. i may be all up in your face with my camera, or be a total fly on the wall to get those beautiful memories for you!  

cool, cool, so how does it work?

* get in touch with me HERE. we'll hop on a phone call (or exchange a few emails if that's your jam). the point of the phone call is so i can learn a bit about what you're looking for, to make sure you understand my process, and also to make sure we vibe well - it's important to me that you not only love my work, but that you feel comfortable around me too!
* book me :)
* have a fun session where we talked, played, and laughed our butts off.
* in a couple weeks, you'll get a slideshow with all your beautiful images and then pick a print package. easy peasy!

sounds great! i'm interested, what's your rate?

your non-refundable session Retainer is $300 and reserves your date and time on my calendar + my time editing your photos*. but like i mentioned above, before you book me we schedule a call/facetime to make sure we're perfect for each other. after our chat, i'll send you an email with a little summary of what we talked about, a contract for your to sign, and an invoice. you'll officially be booked once the contract is signed and session retainer has been paid.
